Synopsis: Stalwart and powerful, oxen are employed as working cattle all over the world. Stronger, steadier, less expensive, and easier to keep than draft horses, oxen can plow fields, haul stones, assist in logging, improve roads, and showcase traditional farming techniques. Oxen can help smallscale farmers keep costs down and productivity up without expensive machinery.

Oxen is the definitive resource for selecting, training, feeding, and caring for the mighty ox. It shows you how to choose an ideal team, properly feed and house your oxen, train calves and mature cattle, fit a yoke and bows, address common challenges, and maintain a team's overall health. You'll also learn how to use oxen safely for a variety of farming and logging tasks and how to train a team for demonstrations and competitions.

From the Back Cover: Operating Manual for the Mighty Ox

From plowing and hauling to logging and demonstrating traditional farming techniques, oxen contribute their trustworthy strength to many tasks. Calm and easy to work with, they are perennial favorites at farm museums, in municipal parades, and at county fairs. Here is the definitive resource to owning and working a team of your own.

With Drew Conroy's reliable advice, you will select your ideal animals, feed and house them properly, begin their basic training, fit them with a yoke and bows, and look after their health. Finally, you will take on the satisfying process of training your team to master the working skills you desire.

Farm with them, show them off, or compete with them --- there is much to admire about the mighty ox.
